After winning Best Breakthrough DjJat the International Breakbeat awards and rocking the best floors across the country over the last few years, Scott Reeder aka Hexadecimal's finally taken the plunge and produced his first full length album. It's impressive stuff, from the opening beatless "Intro" which drops perfectly into "Dead Moose", and sets the tone with lots of high energy breakbeat power. Reeder brings plenty of variety though on Base 16, with "Serious Action" featuring the soft, soulful vocals of Percydread and rocking some moody washes of synth pads as well as dub-style bass. "I'm Not Insane" also goes the vocal route, with Kurnel MC filling the breakdowns with a fast-flowing rhyme that builds in momentum. And for the ultimate bass hit, check out the enormous and appropriately-titled "Nuclear Sub" - probably one of the highlights of a classy and pleasantly-varied debut.
